For those who want to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in style, there is the luxurious $100 margarita being sold through Saturday at all Fleming's steakhouse and wine bars across the country, including Salt Lake City.

The one-of-a-kind margarita is made with some of the world's highest-quality liquor, including Tequila Herradura — an ultra-premium spirit made with 100 percent agave. A 750-ml bottle costs $370 at Utah state liquor stores.

Adding to the indulgence, the cocktail is served in a crystal highball glass made by world-renowned French manufacturer Baccarat.

Guests who pay for the cocktail can take home the glass — in an iconic red box — as a souvenir, allowing them to commemorate the Mexican Army's unlikely victory, on May 5 1862, over French forces in the Battle of Puebla, any time they want.

Fleming's has even shared its recipe. (See box.)
